Two Christ Church men in their 50s faced the Oistins Magistrates’ Court Tuesday charged with separate offences.
But while Richard Anderson Moseley, 54, of Sayes Court was granted his freedom, Peter Rudolph Gay, 58, of #44 Hillside Terrace in Gall Hill was not so lucky.
Moseley, a surfing instructor, is charged with assaulting Michael Batson on December 14, occasioning him actual bodily harm.
He pleaded not guilty to the offence before Acting Magistrate Alliston Seale, and with no objection from the prosecutor, Moseley was released on a $5,000 bail.
However, he was warned not to leave the jurisdiction without first getting the permission of the Oistins Criminal Court. The same applies if he wants to travel.
Asked whether he knew the complainant, Moseley answered: “We were supposed to be friends but I don’t know what happen.”
“Stay away from the complainant,” the magistrate replied.
Moseley returns to court on March 13, 2017.
Meanwhile, Gay will spend the holidays behind bars at HMP Dodds.
He pleaded not guilty to stealing BDS$150 and US$10 belonging to Philip Knight on December 9.
In arguing for his release Gay told the magistrate he would like to spend Christmas with his children.
However, Seale denied his bail application and remanded Gay to prison until January 12, 2017.
